  • Oven


  • 1 cup Chickpeas also known as garbanzo beans. You can use canned or jarred.
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil doesn't need to be high quality. Can also use other oil if convenient
  • 1 tsp Salt plus more to taste


  • Peel all your chickpeas and let them rest on a paper towel.
  • Use more paper towels to dry them off, then sprinkle some salt on them and put them over a sieve to wick away more moisture for 20 minutes. Preheat your oven to 175 Celsius.
  • Put the chickpeas in a bowl, add the olive oil, and coat completely. Place them on a foil lined baking tray as uncrowded as you can get it. Put in oven and bake for 32 minutes.
  • As soon as they are done, sprinkle with some more salt to taste, or the seasonings of your choice.


To store: Until they are completely room temperature, leave them out in the open. You don't want to put them in a jar in the fridge or the steam can kind of dissolve them a bit. Even so, I've never had to store them longer than a day and they are perfectly fine being left out uncovered on the counter.
